Ladies, I Need Your Advice...

Good morning lovely  blog friends! I need help. It's nothing major, quite trivial really, but it's a dilemma none the less. I don't know what to do with my hair. If you're a woman, you understand. Sometimes you just feel like throwing your hands in the air and shaving it all off so you don't have to deal with it anymore. (No worries, I won't actually do that.)

Currently my hair is in a short angled bob...the same haircut everyone else has. I've had this hairstyle off and on for about four years and I feel like I need to stick with a change. Here's some looks I've had over the years they range from very short to long (well, the longest I've ever had anyways.)


PIXIE CUTS









SHORT/MEDIUM LENGTH









LONG HAIR








QUESTION: 
Which do you think looks prettiest on me? 
Should I grow it out again? 
Keep it the current length but a different style (need ideas!) or...
go really short (even though my husband would die if I cut it like that again...)?

  1. Def short medium to long! You look wonderful with any style but I think with a beautiful neck like yous short/medium is perfect

  2. I love the medium length and long length! Your hair looks gorgeous (though it's only a side view) in the picture of you with the giraffe. My hubs is the same way - long long long! I don't think I've ever had my hair above my shoulders, except when I was really young. Long is good b/c of easy up-do's when your hair is a disaster or your lazy (read: me everyday). But maybe that's easy for shorter hair too? Again, never had it, so I don't know!!

  3. Jenna- Thanks!
    Amy- Not easy to put up...which it part of my current dilemma.

  4. So first of all, I believe you are one of those lucky people who looks gorgeous with all kinds of styles (short/medium/long)! Seriously :)

    I'm not sure how helpful I am going to be, but at first I was like," I'm DEFINITELY going to recommend short." -- that first picture is so cute! ...And then I scrolled further down & saw the giraffe picture... beautiful. I love long hair on you!

    ...I'm actually currently debating my hair length, too. Mine is currently (read: it has been for probably 90% of my life with hair...) medium length... but I'm considering going long in honor of marathon training. (My) Medium length hair can be a pain in the patoot... it bugs me to have little bits come out of the ponytail in the middle of a run....

    Keep us updated on your decision!

  5. I I must say I love the medium-long length on you. The last pic of you is gorgeous!

  6. Medium to Long DEFINATLY! I love it long! :)

  7. Amy- I totally understand. When I put my short hair up in a hair band and "pony tail" my hair falls into this mushroom cloud when I run. ICKY!

    Malin and Laura- Thanks for the help you two! I see where this is going. I have a feeling I'll be posting many more "I HATE MY HAIR" posts as I struggle to grow it out. The inbetween stage is the worst!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Haha- I can't believe you put in that first pic- I look like a crazy lady!! I get the feeling/itch to chop it all off- I currently have that same stirring. Maybe it's a summer thing? Well, anyways, I agree with Amy, you're gorgeous no matter what length you go, but I'm somewhat fond of medium to long. I'm leaning more long on this one... :)

  9. You look great in so many different cuts! How about a lob? a long bob?

    ReplyDelete
  10. You'd look lovely in any haircut. But I love the way you have it styled in the "long hair" (that's short hair to me!) pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I vote Long, it looks great! You're lucky that it's not too thick because thick, long hair is the worst... that's why I'm sticking with short, lol. BUT... I have a mushroom when I put my hair back to work out. Can't do a pony, but I use stretchy headbands and the hair just falls over the band into a lovely mushroom-like shape. I may need to reconsider or my future training clients will judge me for poor hair... lol :-D

  12. You have the perfect face shape for just about any haircut, you lucky, lucky girl! But my favorite is probably medium to long on you. I think it's more versatile and very flattering to your cheekbones. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, I love you with long hair! You pull off short hair very well, but the long looks so pretty on you, Hannah! Plus, you have more options for hairstyles.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Becky- Haha. Don't hate me. I love that picture though. It totally captures our relationship at that time. Thanks for the advice.

    Tamara- A lob, huh? I shall take this into consideration...

    Emily- Haha. I know. That "long hair" is the longest I've ever had it in my life, believe it or not!

    Caitlin- I, too, sport the mushroom hair. Not a flattering look. Your hair always looks cute though...honest!

    Elizabeth- Thanks, and thanks for your help!

    Jillian- Yeah, I'm all about the more options part of it. Long hair here I come!

  15. ohmygoodness! you + pixie = gorgeous!! you're so brave to do that. i sometimes want to, but i don't have the (pardon my french) balls to do it. i like your hair at all stages. it's not fair, really. but i'm loving the giraffe kissy picture. those layers and curls look amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Honest truth? I don't like the pixie. Whoops. So I would go with the medium or longer version. You can grow it out now a bit more, and then maybe for winter cut it up to medium, or the other way around, but you have gorgeous hair and look cute with all cuts. Just no pixie. Not that it doesn't look good on you, just think it is too short.

    xoxo

  17. Selma- You get an A+ for honesty. There's nothing I appreciate more than a friend that can tell it like it is! :) Thanks girl!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Brissa- Yes, it does take balls. Not to cut it, but to grow it out when you are done with the look. I looked like a boy with helmet hair for a good 6 months. It was awful.

  19. I like the giraffe kiss hair best! And I think that I have a cut and color idea that would be perfect for you:

    I can't even tell you how I dream of having that hair!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Leslie- OOOooo that is nice! Looks like she has about the same thickness of hair I do, which makes things easy. It's always hard to pull of a look when you know the only reason someone is pulling it off is because they have thick wavy hair or something.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You sure can rock a pixie cut, lady! But your hair looks extra fabulous in the funny giraffe photo, so I vote long!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Funny, because today I asked for hair advice too! I think you look great with all styles but I have a bias towards long hair. I'm sorry I'm not of more help, hah!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the medium-long hair. I might have a bias for long hair though. You're lucky you can pull off all 3 lengths though!

    Sincerely,
    Sabrina

  24. you look great with all the styles, but I personally prefer medium to long from your pictures, I'm a fan of long hair myself so perhaps thats why I'm a bit bias!

    ReplyDelete
  25. i really love it long, but thena gain, i'm partial to long hair because mine frizzes incredibly in humidity or rain so having it short is not an option for me, but oyu look fabulous all three ways, you have great bone structure so you can pull off a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love your hair long, but you can pull off any look!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I really like long the best but you look really good with the short/medium hair(lucky!)

  28. hehe It's so funny that your longest hair is the shortest I've ever cut my hair :D You look pretty in all of the pics but I love the the long hair on you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. you are lucky you look great every way. I personally like it long though!

    I know what is like to be sick your hair and not know what to do-- I feel the exact same way right now!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dude you look good in all lengths. Sheesh. I kind of like the pixie cute frankly. But I like long for me...so hard to choose! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. They all look great but I'm partial to long hair. I think it's a Southern thing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am so jealous that you're hair looks great at every length! You have one of those faces that can just pull it all off! I think I like medium and or long the best though :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, you are one of the few people I know where they all look good on! But I really like the med length, at your shoulders. Thought that one looked really cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've done so many different things with me hair! It's the only thing about me that's constantly changing. I love your hair in the first photo of the short/medium section. Going short/medium would be less frustrating to grow out - you'll be able to tie you hair up whilst running and still do it up when you go out...and if you want it'll be easier to then progress to the long length. So I vote short/medium it looks wonderful on you :) And I also love reading all the advice you got here!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Geez guys, thanks for all your sweet comments and advice! Looks like I'm gonna be growing my hair out (at a snails pace) for the next 9 months to a year (because that's about how long it will take).

    But that means I need you guys! When I do a post declaring my disgust with my long beautiful locks you have to comment saying "NOO! Don't do it, it looks great! Just give it a week and see what you think.."

    OK? Deal!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You actually wear all the different lengths really well! But I like it long best!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm definitely a fan of the medium look on you! I say go for it...we're all here to support and encourage you!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd go for hairstyle number three, although you look lovely on all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I vote long. But it takes forever to grow! I'm still kicking myself for cutting mine shorter a couple of years ago. Good luck on the decision!

    ReplyDelete
  40. your blog is very cool¡¡¡ kisses from Mexico :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. You totally work the medium length hair!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Gosh! I now see your dilemma.. you look cute no matter what, ha!

    I especially love the first photo, third photo, and last two photos. But I'm always bias with long hair. Good luck & show us when you take the cut (or... not, whichever style you choose)!

    ReplyDelete
  43. The giraffe kiss pic is my choice ~ but the pixie is a very close second. Perhaps add a few vibrant highlights to perk the current look up a bit?!?

    ReplyDelete
  44. you look fabulous in all of these pictures! I especially love the pixie cut:) You pull it off stunningly!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, hair is a TOUGH one. Well, you look fabulous in all three styles (I'm so jealous you can pull off short hair!), but I think I like the length in the middle best. It's cute, sassy and can still be work in a ponytail :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm new to your blog but can't help chiming in! You look stunning in that last photo with the long hair. But the medium hair looks good too - in fact, you remind me a bit of Claire Danes in that first foto (where your eyes are closed)!

  47. love love love the pixie on you! You have such a fresh, beautiful face that you can really pull it off!

    ReplyDelete
  48. speaking of hair... i love the length of your eyelashes!

    anyways... don't ask me. i never know.
    i'm growing my hair out longer than it's ever been... just cause.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the long, but I aldo really like the pixie. So few people can pull off the pixie, and you've got the face for it. The world is your (hair) oyster!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Every one of those hairstyles look beautiful on you! I completely understand the hair dilemma as I am constantly changing my hair. I would have to say, I love the medium length although the short looks fabulous too! Good thing for you is, you have the face shape that fits any style :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. So fun to see everyones opinion :)

    I like your hair anyway you wear it. You've got one of those pretty faces that can pull off any hairstyle. I can totally understand wanting a change though. I've had super long hair now for a couple of years, and have been debating about the big chop off...

    ReplyDelete
  52. i vote not to kill John. . . i especially like the bird on the top of your head in the last picture. can he come with any length?
